"If any one of several Duke Blue Devils should stumble in the slightest, Blossomgame could be the 2017 ACC Player of the Year," ESPN said. "Since adding 3-point range to his repertoire last season, the 6-foot-7 senior is now one of the most effective scoring threats in the nation."
Blossomgame averaged 18.7 points and 6.7 rebounds per game last season. He is trying to become the only two-time, first-team All-ACC player in Clemson history. The next chance to watch Blossomgame and his teammates go for a win is against Davidson on Thursday at 11 am ET in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.
The Top 10 in the rankings were Grayson Allen, London Perrantes, Ivan Rabb, Markelle Fultz, Josh Hart, Melo Trimble, Jaron Blossomgame, Dillon Brooks, Monte Morris, and Frank Mason III.
